finally watched empire of the sun yesterday. read the book about a year ago finally and j g ballard is one of my favourite authors (read nearly everything) and speilberg a fave director so it was only a matter of time. the movie was excellent and probably in my top 10 with ease. i knew christian bale played the kid but i had no idea ben stiller, john malcovich, and joe pantelione were in it. i had no idea ben stiller was that old! hes one of my least favourite actors but i do like him when he plays supporting and lecherous roles like in happy gilmore. i remember the part after the war seeming a lot longer in the book, but this was definately a good showcase of speilberg's magic. i'd love someday if dreamworks made a theme park, it would be awesome. can't wait for indy 4.
